Trixie Delicious and Kitty
Largewood of Sassy have traveled the world, getting by on their sultry rock
'n' roll sass and raw talent. But between road stints, they're always happy to
boom-swagger-swagger-boom back to Oakland and San Francisco, respectively. On the eve of the release of their second album, Diggin' Deep, we sat
down with vocalist/guitarist/catwoman Trixie to find out how you become a
gear -- we need way more for our massive collection of 7-inch leather heels.
Touring is always a blast, but it's cheaper when there's only two people. So
now we like the fancy stuff -- Moet, Grey Goose, Stella ... the boys go broke."
outfits are the way forward. We also believe in push-up bras, fishnets,
eyeliner, lip gloss, big hair (go fake if you need to), and the 'Dirty Martini'

"Trixie Delicious came from the
backwoods of Dee Troit Rock City, grew up in a little pink shack that wasn't too pretty (what a pity, what a pity). Met Kitty Largewood at the five and dime, but they were tired of wastin' their time. Kitty grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, grew up crazy, grew up
fast, and she used her rack ('cause man, she is stacked)."
we also know how to handle ourselves in a broom closet, if you know what we're
sayin'. Hubba! Hubba!"
with Sassy. We can out-Justin Timberlake any of you MFers. We know the importance
of good make-up, though -- you gotta get your face sprayed if you've had a rough
night out and you still need to maintain the sexy."
Woman outfits on Saturday, May 21 (actual day of the rapture), at Bottom of the
Hill. 1 p.m., all ages, tickets on a sliding scale (it's a benefit). Diggin' Deep is out June 14 on Good Trouble Records.
